We've been to this restaurant before and had great food and service. This time, not so much. My son's food was cold, our drinks ran dry, and the waitress didn't check in with us, passing by several times without making eye contact.

We ordered the classic steak sandwich and it is still great. Chicken noodle soup, grilled mozzarella, the special with red cream soda. It is is great comfort food. A signature family gathering

Had a great lunch at this restaurant with large portions and great prices too. Everything we ordered was delicious and flavorful. The salads were just enormous and I can hardly believe that one person could finish one for lunch. I had the Garlic Tips And Broccoli, and it was served over a large bed of rice. Delicious and very garlicky... More

We went there for breakfast. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was good, but nothing really special. It would have been a fairly good experience if the cahier lady would have known how to process a credit card correctly. She insisted, in a very unfriendly manner, that my card was not working, although I have used it the same day... More

Popular for their Steak Sandwich but even better is to order the 1/2 pound Ground Round on grilled bread. Exact same as steak sandwich but a much larger portion of meat if you like that. We have been eating here for decades (about every other month) and have never sent anything back or been disappointed. Don't hesitate to stop in.... More

The Steak sandwich is what most people like the most when they come here. I prefer the perch dinner. Bandana Split is great, as well.

I wanted to like this place, but the food is disgusting. Nothing is made here (sauce, bread, meatballs etc.) Instead they serve flavorless canned sauce/veggies, stale (challenging to bite into) bread, bland salads etc. I couldn't believe the prices either, $12 for angel hair with sugary, watered down sauce. The lasagna cheese and meat filling still gives me the chills...... More
